About the location: Provence is a land of fresh, delectable produce, inviting locals, and a relaxing lifestyle. All of these will be yours to enjoy during your stay in a private villa in the charming town of Maussane-les-Alpilles. From Maussane the rest of Provence is yours to explore: the famed market of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, the historical cities of Avignon and Cassis, the charming villages of St. Remy-de-Provence, Gordes, and Bonnieux. You will taste the delectable wines of Provence and enjoy its amazing, fresh cuisine during hands-on cooking lessons and dinners prepared by your own private chef, as well as out at local restaurants.
About the accommodations: your home will be a beautiful small villa in the heart of the village of Maussane. The villa was lovingly restored by the owner into a 5-room oasis full of original materials, antiques, and art. The villa also has a living room, piano lounge, terrace, heated pool, and of course fully-equipped kitchen.
About the cooking courses: your cooking classes will be led by popular local chef Yvan Cadiou, as well as by Chef John, who will lead a cooking class in Avignon, and private chefs Anne Chalier and Veronique Boiron. The hands-on classes will be held in the villa's fully equipped kitchen and in Avignon, and will feature the best of Provencal cuisine, from the freshest seasonal produce, to its seafood, foie gras, and truffles.
